EMRE KINAY BIOGRAPHY
Born: March 5th 1970
Erdem was born in Istanbul. Both his Mum and Dad were theatre actors. His brother Emre is a composer. He did his primary and secondary school education in Istanbul. He really wanted to be a lawyer or a prosecutor at this age but he won a place at Mimar Sinan University State Conservatory in theatre studies. He graduated in 1995.
His first acting was in a theatre play from the renowned teacher Zeliha Berksoy in 1992. He commenced his TV and film work from 1997. He has starred in numerous stage plays but also has directed many too. Surprisingly he has only made a handful of movies ( Insaat and Insaat 2 0) but lots of TV series including, Gunesi Beklerken ( 2014 ) Sil Bastan ( 2014 ) Ulan Istanbul ( 2014 ) Gunesin Kizlari ( 2015 ) amd Sevda’nin Bahcesi ( 2017 )
He will be starring in the new series Vurgun which commences early in 2019. The series directed by Altan Donmez and written by Basar Basaran and Emre Ozdur will also star Erkan Petekkaya, Deniz Cakir, Cemal Toktas and Filiz Ahmet.
Emre married Emine Un in 2003 but they divorced in 2009. They have one daughter together, Duru, she is stunningly beautiful. He is also the founder of The Duru theatre in Istanbul. He is active on social media with over 269k followers. He promotes his theatre company on there and has some great personal photos. It’s obvious he is very close to his daughter.
I am looking forward to watching Vurgun, its a series that looks good so I will be interested to see Emre in this project.
